Former WBC Cruiserweight champion Juan Carlos Gomez returned to the ring after an 18 month layoff against overmatched Adnan Buharalija .
Interestingly this fight was made at cruiserweight, a division that Gomez deserted in 2001 following a struggle to make the then 190lb weight limit. His move up to heavyweight culminated in a failed WBC title shot against champion Vitali Klitschko.
Gomez (52-3, 39 KOs) took out Adnan Buharalija (29-19-2, 21 KOs) in 2 rounds at the ASV Halle in the Munich on Friday night. A knockdown in round 1 showed Gomez’s superiority and a barrage of punches prompted the referee to halt proceedings in the 2nd.
Alexander Petkovic (48-4-4, 26 KOs) beat Chupaki Chipindi (11-5, 6 KOs) by 4th round KO in the main event.
